As we reported yesterday, audio recording for Project Octopath Traveler has concluded in Japan.
Square Enix shared a special behind-the-scenes video to commemorate the end of the project’s audio recording. Yasunori Nishiki, composer of Project Octopath Traveler, also has a special message to share with everyone waiting for the game.
Check it out below:
Hello everyone! I’m Yasunori Nishiki, composer for project OCTOPATH TRAVELER. Having turned 32 this year, I’m part of the generation that grew up playing RPGs, and is drawn to pixel art on an almost visceral level.
My goal was to create a soundtrack that would bring back the feelings from our childhood frozen deep inside us – feelings from those days when our hearts beat with excitement at the boundless worlds of adventure that stretched out before our eyes.
At the same time, I didn’t want to just recreate the past, so I applied a great deal of heated passion to “defrost” these feelings in an even more real and dynamic form befitting the modern era.
I’ve been told that today, we’ll be sharing a brand new battle theme with you. I hope that listening to it will get you even more excited for the full game. Please enjoy!
